    Map Map of Creation!

    Hi everyone!

    This is my first post around here. I've been making maps for quite some time, but this one is my first digital map. I made it for personal use and it depicts the campaign world 'Creation' featured in White Wolf's Exalted RPG. I used the first edition map as a guideline for the lineart, but have since added features from many sources from the line.

    My theme was simply to use a neutral palette and to not have any color "killing" the map. The text for cities and other features had to be kept very small since this map is showing off a huge place. The map itself is made with Photoshop CS.


    I hope you like it.

    Thanks Torstan! This is a cool site. I can't understand how I failed to notice the site all this time.

    Welcome to the Guild, Zardan! Your map is a thing of beauty, lovely sharp, crisp lines. I particularly like the desert texture and the palette you've used. Please post more!

    p.s. Your paintings on your DevArt site are fantastic!!

    Great Work Zardan. Great pallette and subtle use of colour combined with clear, clean labelling. Looks very cool. Oh and Welcome too.

    As a fan of the Exalted setting I have to say well done! If you look around the site, I believe you'll find a few other Creation maps and some links to other sites that have maps as well. Also, welcome to the Guild! I look forward to seeing more of your work. Do you have other maps of Creation like cities or encounter areas?

    Welcome Zardan! I can honestly say that I can find nothing about this map that I don't like execpt that I wish it were larger so I could zoom in more. The glacier looks awesome and their cliffs look very creadible. Nice touch with the changing forest color as you head North. Hope to see more.

    I'll take a look around. It would be great to find more maps of Creation. I'm converting the map to the Underworld and I am thinking about zooming in certain areas (including cities). If I do, I'll post them!


    Also thanks to everyone who commented on the map! Much appreciated!

    Ah, you have your rivers and seas as a single object, huh -- all the land cut away to make the rivers. That solves the estuary problem! I wanna try that.
